That’s what my heart tells me.
But to fight our many enemies
And finally unite my people,
I must destroy what I’ve become.
Kiera Driscoll and her allies return from their perilous journey to find their home in ruins.
The East has retreated. For now. But they’re up to something in the mountains, and their brief occupation has left the West with no food, weakened defenses, and an angry populace crying out for a leader. Keegan Tramore is the rightful ruler of all of Marlenia, but his memory is not what it was, and thus it falls to Kiera to carry the broken realm on her shoulders.
There is only way to restore Keegan to his former self: the Midnight Tablet, a primal artefact and the legendary origin of all magic. It promises secrets and knowledge to its possessor, as long as they’re willing to pay the price.
Magic has corrupted everyone Kiera has ever trusted, and now that same magic she has sworn to destroy has awoken within her. As Kiera spirals into darkness, she must decide, once and for all, what—and whom—she will sacrifice to rid her people of the tyranny of magic.
